Both neighbors are loaded with puppies. On the right..8 beauties. On the left beagles any minute. It’s a good thing bu put her foot down. They sure are hard to resist. Got my writers newletters and was glad to hear from them. They are all suffering from the economy, hurricanes, floods, sickness and such. Not a happy picture for most. Finished my chores and now I’l going to read pd james. That always puts me right. Back to the shelves tomorrow. Praise God, three days doesn’t interfere too much with my other activities. Unless….they throw in other stuff on other days.
